This blog was created to document in a less formal way the experience of creating xmlsh. My goal is that others may learn from experiences, both successes and failures.
I started xmlsh over a year ago, in Dec 2007. At this point (Jan 2009) it is a in "Alpha 1" state. That is, it is functional and used currently in production but still subject to core enhancements before I recommend it to be used in production environments.
Current work in progress is an experiment to create an "XProc" implementation which converts xproc pipelines to xmlsh scripts.
